Most Popular Travel Destination - The Greek Islands

With Ramadan over in a few weeks, I am sure a lot of you will be travelling in August for your summer vacations. Where will you go? I teamed up with Reem Shaath, owner of boutique travel consultancy Why Wander (Link) to find out what the Top travel destination is. It turns out that the Greek Islands of Mykonos and Santorini are the most popular. 

Mykonos and Santorini are well known for their stunning beaches, turquoise seas, beautiful sunsets, and delicious, fresh food. They sit on the Aegean sea and are popular during the summer months for tourists from around the world.

Santorini is larger and more picturesque than Mykonos with it's white villas hugging the cliffs and beaches with black volcanic sand. It's a great place for honeymooners, and tranquil and relaxing holidays.  It's quite therapeutic being there and you'll always feel like you are in a postcard. If you love to shop, Santorini's little town of Oia has amazing boutiques and narrow, cobbled streets.

Mykonos is my ultimate FAVOURITE place to travel to and I have been vacationing there for six years in a row. It is more fun and lively than Santorini and is an ideal destination for a great group of friends or a family. The are beautiful beaches all over the island and most turn into parties at sunset. Mykonos Town is adorable with its painted blue windows, narrow cobbled streets, and really incredible shopping. Everywhere you eat, you will find fresh fish, cheese and olives and the restaurants are delicious. Energy always seems to bounce off the walls of that island and no-one ever sleeps! It is an island that caters to every kind of traveller.
